Paracas and Huacachina from Lima with Ballestas Islands and Sand Boarding

730 reviews
The coastal and desert regions outside Lima offer a world of outdoor adventure far from the city, but complex bus systems—and, for some visitors, a language barrier­—make exploring a challenge. On this full-day tour, travel in comfort from your Lima hotel and hit Paracas and Huacachina with ease. Spot native marine life in the Paracas National Reserve and try sandboarding on South America’s largest dunes.

What a lovely and beautiful place, with lots of history. Located at dowtown, this place was worth visiting, I was amazed by the amount of history that that place has. I was speechless everytime the tour guide talked to us, she was very knowledgeable! I f you like history, then you should go to this place!

Beautiful church dating to 1600s, damaged in 1650 earthquake, and completed in 1672. Original colorful tiles from Sevilla, Spain decorate the cloisters and patio. Library is home to centuries old manuscripts and books. Spooky catacombs display 15,000 remains. Inside the dome is an elaborate wooden latticework in a Moorish pattern. Didn't get to see the main Chapel & the famous Last Supper serving roasted guinea pigs. Regrettably, no photos allowed inside.

We visited during the start of march. The tour guide was fantastic, very informative and clear English. We really enjoyed both the beautiful decor of the church and exploring the catacombs.

We visited this church on our walking tour of old Lima and thus were possibly not able to give it the attention that it deserves. For example, we were unable to tour the catacombs. It really is quite beautiful inside and obviously well constructed, as it has survived numerous serious earthquakes. It is one of the most visited churches in South America, but I did not think it the most beautiful. However, it still a very beautiful church and worth a visit.
